Great food, great service decent prices. Definitely worth another visit. Be warned, when the staff ask if you want spicy they really mean spicy! Get a table close to the bar if you want peace from the traffic.

We can recommend this place! there were a view comments on tripadivisor that the staff is not nice: we can't agree. The staff was very nice. The food was cheap but very good. We orderd red Thai Curry and Sweet and Sour Chicken and it was so good!

I ate here a few times during my stay, everytime the food was good the service was great and the price is reasonable! Dishes I recommend are: Tom yum goon soup, eggplant in tomato sauce, and Swiss rosti.

What I've noticed in the 4 days I've been here is how hard it is to find really good, real Vietnamese food at a decent price. What I'd found to date was poorly presented imitations and sub standard Indian and tolerable... More

We went here based on the reviews as we fancied something a bit different from Vietnamese food and its was great. At first we were a bit apprehensive as it was empty and I'm always a bit dubious of empty restaurant but we needn't have been, food was great, Such good value. We had a red curry with chicken and...

Went in here while waiting for the night bus to hoi an. The food is very good value. The beer is also super cheap 12,000. Got chicken pad Thai that was very tasty the portion size was large which I liked. Would recommend popping in here for some food if you pass by.
